    EDIT: Wolf TM Available here, for $12

    The successor to AM Tread Partner, this model was designed from scratch to be a Animal <---> Gun transformer.

    So, what's so good about this model? Well first, it's bigger. And taht means a lot more can be packed into it. This model packs a lot of articulation, the hed is free to look up or down, the tail swivels up and down, ad each leg swivels as well. As an added bonus, this model comes with ankles!!! Yes, ankles. This was something only capable with the added size, and is a welcome improvement, making standing this bad boy a piece of cake.

    Again, this model uses the same 5-3 hybrid connector (again, thanks to Ramrider), which means he can be used not only by Breacher, but also anyone with a vertical 3mm clip, and also anyone with a 5mm hand hole. Also, Wolf TM uses the standard 6-3 barrel setup, so the lower barrel of 3mm allows him to attach any 3mm weapon. Skystalker's axes, the weapons i've designed, Breacher's cannons, any 3mm weapon works. :) 

    And yes, its tail is tiny. I know. Infact, according to my friends they say it should be called the "Pig TM", due in part to the tail and ears. Be it a wolf or a pig, don't mess with this guy. And shoud it be a pig, i await the day i see someone paint this pink. :lol

    That's not half bad - I can definitely see the pig in him! :lol 
    Now you know it works, I would suggest a few aesthetic mods, like making it at least look like he has knees/elbows, and bulking out and detailing some areas, like the shoulders/hips.
    But on the whole, that's work pretty darned well - nice lob! :D 

    I'm curious about the articulation on them - are they just straight posts relying on friction to hold legs and feet in place, or did you use some other trick?

    Well, straight holes and pegs this time. While i'd love to employ Hasbro's capped pin strategy, the size wouldn't let me. For now, i notice that one joint on the Wolf is a bit loose froml the printing process, but the ones that came out as intended work fine, and i don't see them loosening anytime soon. I'll report back on this issue after he's painted, as i think the paint might make the joint tighter. Just a hunch.

    nice design tweak. Is there any way to see a pic with a deluxe figure? Maybe a classics seeker mold?

    Yeah, with a little work this would actually make a pretty awesome boar. Some kind of spiky detailing on the "back"/underside of the barrel, and tusk detailing on the head. Call him "Razorback" and make him an Autobot who hates Krok's partner, Gatoraider.

    (SEC what?!)

    Hmm, my WFC Soundwave seems to have stolen him. I'll check the CCTV and see if i have some shots of him holding Wolf. :D 

    There's a variation of AM Tread Partner with wings, untested, but it'll be in the same batch as Gorilla Minion, so should be here soon.

    :lolol 

    Hmm. The underside of the barrel i can't mod, due to that being teh attachment point for 3mm weapons, but i can certainly add a tusk. Hmm....

    *goes to sketchup*
